that might otherwise miss on election day. so if you're barack obama and you are both an incumbent and a democrat, you like the fact that this year is going to be the high water mark so far for early, in-person voting. megyn: they're saying that half of the vote is expected to come in early in most of the battleground states. half of the vote will come in early in most of the states including north carolina, florida, colorado, nevada, ohio, iowa. i mean, that's, that's critical. so if you look at this national race right now, tied up in so many of these polls, but then you get a different result, usually president obama winning when you look at the state-by-state analysis in ohio and florida and virginia and pennsylvania, you can't be happy about that if you're mitt romney, can you? >> no. and this is why democrats -- this is why incumbents and especially democrats have pushed for these early voting, that they really want it because it cuts into the time for mitt romney, in this case, to challenge the democratic incumbent, to come in and try to knock him down a peg. this is really

am met megyn kelly. president obama addressing u.s. today and what we were told would be a speech. the president devoted time saying that the united states wants to resolve u.s. diplomacy, believing there is time to do so. his remarks, once again, reflects witchery muscle, unveiling a new drone that it says complies with a range of over 1200 miles and covers much of the middle east, including israel and many u.s. military bases. what is more, iran says it wants to develop a drone with attack capabilities. ed henry is live in newark city with more. reporter: overnight as well, we learned that iran test fired four missiles that are designed to hit warships. is giving you an idea i say are how high tensions are. he has been demanding what he calls redlines from the obama administration in terms of some sort of an idea of exactly at what point when iran reaches a nuclear threshold. at what point would the u.s. take military action to stop them from moving forward. the president made clear that he still believes the tough sanctions put in place against iran need more time to work. fran
mitt has been matching obama small ball for small ball. a hit-and-run critique here. this is important. a hit-and-run critique here, a slogan of the week there. that's what we've been saying. sam stein, there is no over arching message, no reagan message, no thatcher message, no george h.w. bush message in 1988. it's small ball. you have a libyan embassy blow up. you push him out the next morning and do something that even the romney campaign now understands was an absolute disaster. the president makes a faux pa about a bump in the road which was a stupid thing to say but they obsess over that. they say this is the message. this is how we're getting people back to work and change the economy clearly they're chasing after news headlines trying to win the day. >> that is a good way to put it. they're chasing. >> but it's weird because you can argue they're racing after the wrong news headlines. for instance we spent a couple days obsessing over a 1980s or 1990s redistribution quote from obama right? that was the news of the day for the romney campaign at that time. we gave more attentio

? >>guest: no question. the people of israel are very concerned about president obama getting re-elected. president obama is an ideologue with a view that is extreme left. we go back to the speech he made at cairo university in 2009. he was going to change everything. he was going to endure himself to the muslim world. what does that mean? he was going to push israel away with one hand and bring everyone closer. >>neil: quickly, then, what is your take? if making overtures to muslims does not work, versus the bush policy of just saying you are a piece of work and i will not make the overtures and they still rise up. legislation is no question in my mind that the jewish vote this time will be dramatically different from what it was four years ago where the president got 78 percent of the vote. that will not happen again. >>neil: your prediction is what? >>guest: 32 percent for the republican. >>neil: it will drop ten points? >>guest: absolutely. >>neil: in time for netanyahu but the president is making plenty of time for barbara, he and first lady will tape an interview with the l

show weill hear from president obama. he will step to the stage in front of the podium at the united nations general assembly. that will happen at 10:00 eastern. big moment for the president because critics have been saying he should have been more focused on the dramatic events that have been unfolding including the murder of four americans at our consulate in libya. governor romney hitting the president on the campaign trail for referring to the turmoil going on there as bumps in the road. >> there are extraordinary events going on in the middle east. considering those events either one of them or all of them collectively as bumps in the road shows a person who has very different perspective about world affairs than the perspective i have. i think this is time for america to exert leadership. this is not something we're doing in the middle east. frankly the course we're on domestically left so many people behind. i think we have to take a very different course than the course that has been followed last four years. bill: we're going to take this course. team fox cover

governor romney, that president obama's policies have not slowed iran's nuclear march. >> let me be clear: america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe this is still time and space to do so. that time is not unlimited. make no mistake, a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten the security of israel and the stability of the global economy. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >>shepard: the president has been under fire for not meeting with binyamin netanyahu or any world leaders. despite multiple requests from netanyahu, the president did not set a red line on iran's nuclear activities. that takes us to our chief white house corporate following the president on the campaign trail. the president says the united states will always stand up for freedom. there are limits to america's influence. >>reporter: it is rare to have the two major candidates in the same city, a mile and a half apart. the president is at the u.n. mitt romney was at the clinton global initiative. th

. in 2008 in iowa, then senator barack obama received fewer votes than senator john mccain on election day. but still won the state due to tally from early voting. this year, president obama could receive the same edge from early voting. and the iowa secretary of state's office says that democrats have a 5 to 1 advantage over republicans in the number of absentee ballots requested. now, though the state's republican party promises to close that advantage by election day, the candidates seem to have embraced early voting. both camps approximate put out ads that look and feel like closing arguments. here's president obama's. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide for yourself. >> and with a very different pitch, governor mitt romney. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we shou
